Mews

Mews

Where we live conditions how we feel and, at times, the colours we choose. The same can be said for designers. Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby live and work in London and claim to be heavily influenced by the city, its materials and its colours. To such an extent that they have taken the atmosphere, textures and tones conveyed by their surrounding urban landscape and applied them to a serie of floor and wall tiles. The Mews collection consists of 6 base colours (chalk, fog, pigeon, lead, ink and soot) and each of these contains a palette of 15 different shades. The surface of the tiles is inspired by the variety of textures characterising the capital city's infrastructures, such as bricks, wooden floors, and irregular geometric patterns. The apparently random and intentionally innacurate effect is due to the colour compositional freedom and the colours and tonalities, which add depth and movement to the surface. The Mews collection is industrially made in coloured porcelain stoneware with a coloured mass dough, combined with a handmade glazed white version obtained by extrusion.
